Travel in the Empire of Kim Jong Un - A Glimpse of North Korea - from Der Spiegel
 
Der Spiegel article - Travels in the Empire of Kim Jong Un: A Glimpse of North Korea. Has eleven pictures, the first makes me think of the stories from the USSR where people had to clap after Stalin spoke, and no one would stop first, until someone toppled over. Some of the generals look like they are about to topple over. Some of the other pictures make one think of "1984", which I assume was why they were selected.

I think you got the wrong link. Here is Kim in the driver's hatch of a PT-76.



[And I'm morally compelled to point out that Dukakis never drove or operated any part of the tank. He just went for a joy ride.]
